Abstract:

This descriptive study, conducted in February 2009, aimed to determine the skill-related fitness level among physical education students in the University of San Agustin, Iloilo City when they are classified according to sex and residence. The study utilized 345 randomly selected subjects for the research. To determine the skill-related fitness status, the researcher utilized the fitness test based on the Philippine Physical Fitness Battery Test (2004), Johnson and Nelson (1986) and Corbin et al. (2000). The mean and standard deviation were the descriptive statistics employed while the t-test for independent samples set at .05 alpha level of significance was used for inferential statistics. Results revealed that the male and female respondents had ?above the norm? agility but ?below the norm balance?, coordination, reaction-time, power and speed. On the other hand, participants living in both urban and rural areas were noted to have also ?above the norm? agility and ?below the norm? balance, coordination, reaction time, power and speed. There was significant difference between the rural and urban residents in terms of power and speed, but no significant differences existed between them in terms of their agility, balance, coordination and reaction time.
